Indra has secured a master agreement with the Spanish Ministry of Defense that distinguishes the firm as a primary maintenance provider for terminals used in Spain's military satellite communications system (SECOMSAT).

The agreement establishes the terms under which users of the SECOMSAT system may request maintenance services worth up to a maximum of 42.8 million euros over the next three years, with the option to extend the deal by a further three years.

The framework agreement is divided into three lots, with each corresponding to a different system making up the communications network. Indra was chosen as the sole successful bidder for two of these (lots 1 and 2), while it was selected for the third in a joint venture with Telefonica.

SECOMSAT network systems are used by Ministry of Defense bodies, all three armies and Spain's military emergencies unit (UME).

The maintenance services that Indra is set to provide include support tasks of all descriptions, ranging from preventative maintenance and equipment repairs, through to the provision of engineering services to ensure development of the terminals and to incorporate any technological advances as required.
